The LaTorre LiftTM is a multi-modality non-surgical procedure that incorporates several injectable modalities to create a more youthful face and/or neck.
The first step is an in-depth consultation with one of our nurse injectors. Following this consultation to determine the client’s goals, a plan will be created to achieve this plan.
The LaTorre LiftTM utilizes polydioxanone threads (PDO) threads, similar to those used in medical suturing. These threads do the heavy lifting (e.g., they can immediately lift the jowls), and can create network under the skin for the rejuvenation of collagen, which is vital for anti-aging. These threads are completely absorbable by the body, and as they absorb, they are rejuvenating the collagen.
Another modality in the LaTorre LiftTM is the used of a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler, such as the Juvederm family of fillers that we utilize (Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Juvederm Voluma XC, Juvederm Volbella XC, Juvederm Vollure XC). If you were to think of our fillers as brushes an artist may use, Voluma XC would be the widest, followed by Vollure XC, Ultra Plus XC, then Volbella would be the finest paint brush.
By utilizing these fillers together, the anti-aging artisan (nurse injector) can decrease appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles, add volume where needed (tear trough, cheeks, lips). In the hands of an artist, the nurse injector can create the desired result: a soft, youthful, natural look, without looking over done.
For fine lines and wrinkles, a botulinum toxin (such as Botox® Cosmetic) is used to treat areas in the face and neck required to achieve the desired result.
